donnell in virginia. chris christie in new jersey. even bobby jindal in louisiana. have praised the fact right now there is a close partnership between the white house and the governor's republican and democratic governors. but listen talk about fema. paul ryan, his budget cut -- "new york times" reports this morning. congressional republicans cut 43% out of the primary fema grants that pay for disaster preparedness. remember eric cantor. remember peter, eric cantor, the hurricane struck his district fema wanted to go in there. they wanted more money because of some of the disasters. they asked for more money to deal with the earthquake. even in cantor's district. he said no. we're not going to give fema anymore money unless you cut money from healthcare, you know. so they've been -- anti-disaster relief and again, mitt romney who wants to give it to the states, get rid of fema, put it in the hands of the state or maybe the private sector. can you imagine, can you imagine with this hurricane hitting the coast like new jersey or
in atlantic city cutting it off from the mainland. chris christie has told people there to stay where they are until rescue crews can come reach them. on "morning joe," he said his top priority is ensuring there's no more loss of life. >> we have three urban search and rescue teams with over 50 men and women who are in atlantic city right now rescuing people. we have urban search and rescue teams, as well. so far the loss of life has been minimal, thank god, but we have lost three folks, two in my hometown, actually, two parents who a tree hit their pickup truck. hit their pickup truck, they had their 11-year-old and 14-year-old children in the car, they survived, but both parents were killed. >> in addition to atlantic city, several other shore communities also took direct hits from the storm. look at this video, point pleasant beach at the height of the storm. ron allen is in point pleasant beach. all right, ron. i saw you on nightly news last night. obviously a much different situation this morning. you were there and you watched the storm come in, what do you see this morning? >>
transit. governor chris christie of new jersey announced within the last half hour that the path trains that run between new york and new jersey, he expects they will be out for seven to ten days. seven to ten days, and that is going to make it very difficult for those commuters who come from new jersey to work in manhattan. it will make it very difficult for them to get to work. mayor bloomberg mentioned some of the bridges are open anding they' ing and williamsburg bridge, the manhattan bridge and the brooklyn bridge, they are now all open to traffic, but again, you know, the mayor says, look, if you don't have a reason to go out don't go out because it is a scene of destruction here in new york city. i can tell you that as i drove down here, down the island of manhattan i was struck by all of the tree limbs that are down, the scaffolding is down. there is debris everywhere and once you get below 34th street it is dark because that is where the power is out in lower manhattan. more than a quarter million people there are without power this morning and it has yet to be restored. that m

crist kristie came out and said that the white house has done a first -- governor chris christie came out and said that the white house did a great job. >> i think getting praise from chris christie, a republican governor from new jersey, is huge. he has said more than the democratic governors, actually. i think it creates the idea that the president is handling this well. i think you could possibly see a small bump in a very tight race for the president come this weekend or monday. >> everyone on the east coast is very focused on the devastation caused by sandy. you are in texas. i wonder if everyone is looking at this with the same intensity. >> is the number one story that people are talking about no matter where you live. i am in austin, texas and i have relatives all over the country. this is the number-one thing that they are talking about. there is also a sense of exactly what this is doing in the presidential race. it has been very heated for two years now and is coming to an end. no matter where you live, this is the big concern. people will begin to turn back to the presiden
chris christy made it clear that he is occupied and now off the campaign trail in support of mitt. >> i will tell you this administration at the moment could give a dam less about election day. if you hear about the devastation that's upon this state. i am sure that while the nation election is obviously important, that the people of new jersey at this moment would really be unhappy with me if they thought for a second i was occupying my time thinking of how i was going to get people to vote a week from today. >> now, with seven days left until the election a wild card in the form of a wild storm has put both campaigns into unexpected territory on october 30th 2012. >> well, president obama will travel the storm of new jersey to view the storm damage from the storm that struck the east coast to thank first responders and romney is sell yuled to have a rally in florida. >> all right. tonight millions without power and neighbors in ruins. the after math of sandy will be felt for days. lets bring in sue for what's ahead. >> yeah, we're going to focus on the northeast and the new jersey coa
did not. there's been a bit of a political pushback going on this evening. governor chris christie earlier this afternoon called out atlantic city mayor admonishing him for keeping shelters on this barrier island instead of bussing people off the island as they did last year during irene. and that's why we have a situation. let's walk over here and show you what the rest o of atlantic city is dealing with. this is an access ramp that takes you up to the boardwalk. so these are the streets of atlantic city down here. this is what it looks like. several feet of water covering the street. and here's where things became a problem. you have 400 people on the other side of the city who decided to ride out the storm and stay in their homes and as we talked earlier today, flood water was coming into those homes and there was no way for local emergency crews to get to them. so they had to mobilize national guard units to get those people out of their homes. things got so dangerous they had to pull the personnel back. so there were a couple hundred people still in their homes on the bay side
bloomberg is doing a great job. >> yes, and chris christie, governor of new jersey doing a great job. he is saying the president is doing a great job getting him everything he needs. >> thank god they are not playing politics. >> right. >> he is not standing on ceremony, what a great, great opportunity to show really that they can work together in times of emergency -- >> unlike mitt romney. >> well mitt romney doesn't have any opportunity right now to look presidential. he has nothing to do except for -- >> we're just talking about he is calling these things disaster relief when they are clearly political events. >> exactly. >> obama: i have spoken to all of the governors in all of these states we have pre-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema.
and massive flooding turning the casino town into a raging river. governor chris christie calling the damage simply unthinkable. even before it made landfall the storm did not spare states further south. residents of maryland, delaware, washington d.c., in northern virginia among the millions of people up the coast all the way to maine without power. the superstore slamming into new york city, flooding in some ways and tunnels with record -- a record surge of seawater that breached the city's downtown electrical system, including that supporting wall street. the new york stock exchange and the markets closed for a second straight day with much of the city still paralyzed at this moment. the eastern seaboard literally littered with homes watched from their foundations, streets filled to the rooftops with cars filled with water. in one case, a blazing inferno in queens, new york, a blaze that destroyed more than 80 homes in one community. fema officials say, sandy is not anywhere near being over either end as of right now this storm is moving inland, and dumping more than a foot of snow in wes
for the past two days. president obama will be looking at the devastation with dpgoverr chris christy in new jersey. let's get to todd gross tonight who is tracking the storm over the new york east. >> reporter: you may not believe this. sandy won't quit. if you look right here, there is a new belt of showers and thunderstorms that have formed. gusty storms that are affecting that wart of the country. even the north eastern united states on the coast line is in part of the storm. right in through chicago coming in through the great lakes that is where the winds are funneling in from the north. same winds edge of the storm that moved in on the coast line. that is number two. and three of course, we have a lot of air play in through here. let's zero in on west virginia. it is not only snowing there, they have had over two feet around 30 inches of snow. if you look at the video, from west virginia and from the western pan hand handle of mary they have had not only 30 inches of snow, but another foot that is going to come in the next 24 hours. even though the really big punch from sandy is over,
criticism, governor christie he told people mandatory evacuation, he felt the mayor did not support that. and encouraged people to stay in place, stay in that area. governor christie annoyed about that, and said now is not the time to try to get out, just shelter in place. trying to get emergency workers to people in emergencies if they can. but he didn't feel like it w was -- chad myers is joining us. i'm here with rob marciano. we're seeing more or less -- there's a lot of debris flying around. >> the rain has been a big player ahead of this n the sout southern jersey, delmarva area, including parts of philadelphia, d.c. got a tremendous amount of rainfall. now the eastern half of the storm is mostly -- this is a signature for experiences here on the ground. the wind not only cold, but very erratic, hard to brace against this wind. now the debris continues fly around here. the water that has overtopped the wharf right here is not going to drain very quickly. even though they prepared for that. it's going to be here for quite some time. >> we have the atlantic city mayor joining us on t
of atlantic city and new jersey governor chris christie. christie felt the mayor didn't take the warning seriously enough, didn't pass it on to the residents of atlantic city to get out, and he told them if you haven't gotten out at that point, stay. chris christie said that was the wrong thing to do. we spoke to the mayor on anderson's show and he said the governor doesn't know what he's talking about. people are hunk erg down. four to five people in shelters here in atlantic city. the gusts just whipped up around me right now. while the water levels are receding, we're still getting the back end of the storm. all indications are we have at least an hour more of this to go before it starts to settle down and move to other parts of the region. philadelphia, 60 miles west of me, has still got to see the worst of it. they're still expecting flooding in low-lying areas in philadelphia. that's the situation in atlantic city right now, erin. >> ali velshi, thank you. we're able to hear alli. in an hour or so ago, that was not the case, you could not hear him at all the storm was so bad there.
